Love and Marriage - Bennett Style

The following is an actual conversation held between Morgan and me yesterday.

Morgan: Are you glad that you married me?

Julie: Umm....

Morgan: I mean, even though I'm a jerk.

Julie: Well... most days.

Morgan: That's good.

Julie: Other days, not so much.

Morgan: I don't blame you.

Julie: I mean, if I took all of you, the good, the bad, everything, and put it all in a blender, it -

Morgan: -would be gross.

Julie: Yeah. It would be really gross.

Morgan: But does the good outweigh the bad?

Julie: Yes. Definitely.

Morgan: How much? Is there lots more good than bad?

Julie: I would say that it's about 49% bad, 51% good.

Morgan: (pumping his fist) Yes! So I have room for error!

And then we both laughed like ninnies.

Morgan: I so totally love you, dude.

Julie: I so totally love you, too. .... What about me? How much room for error do I have?

Morgan: None. You are 50% - 50%.

And again the ninny laughter.

I love my husband. He makes me laugh and every once in a while I'm able to repay the favor.

(Disclaimer: It has been brought to my attention that some of my readers do not understand sarcasm. For those readers, let me explain: My husband and I are madly in love, which allows us to joke about our relationship in the above manner. If you still don't get it, then maybe you shouldn't be reading my blog.)

You know what I like best? He calls you "dude." That's way better than "sweetums," or any other such nonsense.

I think more couples need to be like you.
